El Camino Reelers: LGBTQ Square Dancing in Silicon Valley

August 13, 2016: America's Square Dance

El Camino Reelers and friends were featured in two episodes of Mike Luna's closed-circuit TV show America's Square Dance, which you can now see on YouTube. At 28 minutes each, these may be more square dancing than anyone really needs to watch. Check out the "Masterpiece Theatre" intro!

August 6, 2016: Star Across the South Pacific

Some Enchanted Evening! St. Andrews was transformed into a tropical paradise as Reelers and friends danced to caller Vic Ceder and cuer MaryAnn Callahan.

Wednesday Plus/A2 Summer Dancing

While Rich Reel takes a well-deserved break, Wednesday night dancing continues over the summer with our fabulous guest callers!

  • August 10: Mike Luna
  • August 17: Michael Levy
  • August 24: Kurt Golhardt
  • August 31: Dave Decot
Our Wednesday club nights feature a mix of standard Plus, extended Plus (more fun with positions and definitions) and A2 tips, so everyone can relax and enjoy the warm summer breezes!

Tuesday A2 & C1 Summer Dancing

ECR is holding a 16 week series of Advanced Dancing on Tuesday nights over the summer between May 10th and Sept 6th, focusing on extensions to the standard A2 repertoire - harder, more unusual positions, etc. There will be two C1 star tips per night.

  • August 9: Dave Decot
  • August 16: Allan Hurst
  • August 23: Michael Levy
  • August 30: Kurt Gollhardt
If there are at least eight folks who are interested, Allan Hurst will continue holding a review at 7 pm.

We currently have 17 subscribers at $7 per night and would love to have more. Subscriptions may be paid either in two installments of $56 or a single installment of $110. See Lynn Ashmall to sign up. Drop-ins at $8 a night are always welcome!

Real dancing.
Real people.
Real fun.

EL CAMINO REELERS is a modern Western Square Dance club, formed by lesbians and gay men in order to meet people, have fun, and learn to square dance. We dance to live callers using the Callerlab Mainstream, Plus, Advanced, and C1 programs.

LEARN TO SQUARE DANCE! It's a great way to meet active, open-minded, intelligent, and sometimes very silly people. We would be glad to welcome you to our club. Send a note to information@reelers.org and let us know you're interested.
